Trusted Program Provider


More than 125 years ago, 11 men with $11 formed, what is today, Security Benefit to provide life insurance coverage for everyday working people. It was a novel idea in 1892, when life insurance was almost exclusively for the affluent. Life insurance for the working man was followed by several other groundbreaking ideas, including life insurance for women and being one of the first insurance companies to exclusively pursue the retirement market. While other companies are often divided trying to provide health, home, auto, etc. insurance along with retirement insurance, we focus solely on helping Americans retire.


We value the dedication and energy our teachers invest in our nation’s children. Security Benefit works to recognize these efforts through our devotion to helping educators realize a comfortable retirement, and also through monetary support through The Security Benefit Charitable Trust of initiatives that support education professionals.

  • National Teachers Hall of Fame

  • Kansas Teacher of the Year
